Scott McTominay Says He Doesn't Like Manchester United Academy Rule

published at3 months ago

It just adds to the phenomenal season he is having despite troubles the 'Red Devils' have had.



McTominay has played 887 of a possible 900 Premier League minutes and has become the key midfielder in Paul Pogba's injury absence.

It's a far cry from how the midfielder was viewed this time last season.

Former boss Jose Mourinho was a big fan of McTominay but fans thought he was not performing at the required level.

It's safe to say that most of those have changed their mind now.

He has become much more confident in terms of taking players on, with more than forwards such as Mohamed Salah and Riyad Mahrez in the Premier League.



Ashley Young is currently club captain at United but Harry Maguire has taken the armband in two of the last three games.

You have to wonder if McTominay will be in the discussion for new captain in the future.
